In case you missed it (ICYMI*), we did our very first trade show!
The Portland Gift + Accessories Show was a fantastic first show to the trade. I met some incredibly amazing retailers, and connected with some fantastic makers (who were down my row, aka Maker's Market).
It was definitely a learning experience, and it was definitely different from a retail craft show. It was kind of nice not to have to schlep So. Much. Product back and forth for once.
I debuted some new and some updated items at the show, and I'll be sharing them on the blog and in the shop soon (just gotta get some more photography done).
If you're a retailer and missed me at the show, contact me here.
I'll be updating my Stockists page as I ship out orders to some new amazing stores!
Special thanks to the following AMAZING people: my sister-in-law Amanda, who kept me in good and hilarious company throughout the show, my mother-in-law and brother-in-law, who watched my two nephews so Amanda could be with me, and to my amazing husband Rob for wrangling The Boys for three days.
*And no, you're not old for having to Google "ICYMI"...I had to, in addition to Googling 'bae.' Getting old sucks.
Hey there, I'm Holly Marsh (Maker/Illustrator/Mama/Nerd), the force behind MarshMueller. I started the company in 2011 after getting frustrated with the ho-hum options in big box stores when creating my first son's woodland-animal-themed nursery. I hand-pick every fabric, thread color, and zipper, design my own sewing patterns, and moosh them all together to create rad products for parents and gift-givers in my Astoria, Oregon studio (aka MarshMueller Secret Labs).
